Travel Tips for Whitby


by Britannia2

If you look at Sandy Smiths excellent Scarborough page you will see she has an article on rock and here is my Whitby equivalent.
For those of you who do not know rock is not really anything to do with rock ( as found on the foreshore or in a cave) but at the English seaside it is sticks of sugary candy that takes ages to suck and eat. Not at all good for the teeth or waistline but very nice and Whitby has some adventurous types on sale rather than just the standard mint or peppermint types.

Up until a few years ago, the landmark to look for on nearing Whitby, was a trio of enlarged golf balls, which were often spookily surrounded by swirls of fog/sea mist. Fylingdales MOD early warning system! Someone in their wisdom decided it was time to get rid of this 'national treasure' and we now appear to have an Inca temple in their place!

Well, the Moors outskirting Whitby are certainly atmospheric, wild, barren and isolated, making the journey here quite memorable!

Whitby Abbey

by Britannia2

Whitby Abbey is a ruined Benedictine abbey sited on the East Cliff, 199 steps above Whitby harbour - you can drive up to the Abbey or walk up the 199 steps from the town on the East Cliff side. There is a large car park and access to the ruins from the car park is via a lift in the visitor centre so disabled access is good but the ground can be dificult for pushing wheelchairs.
The abbey was destroyed by Henry VIII in 1540 during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. The abbey buildings fell into ruins, and were mined for stone, but remained a prominent landmark for sailors and helped inspire Bram Stoker's Dracula and the ruins are now owned and maintained by English Heritage.
2010 prices are £5.80 for adults with children at £2.90. Concessions are £4.90.

Runswick Bay

by kitkat1980

A small quaint town, at the foot of a beautiful bay.The bay is a large stretch for the area, with lovely golden sands. The beach has won several awards for its standards.The village is only tiny and has only 40 residents permenantly located there now. The area is popular with boaters and used to be a thriving fishing village but sadly is no longer.
It really is a place to get away, there is very little here apart from some stunning views and plenty of beach. There is little to distract you allowing plenty of time to relax, and being at the beach there is alwas plenty for the kids to play with. A lovely area for a stop off and a picnic.

Steps and Donkey Path

by sandysmith

Grit your teeth and climb the 199 steps to the top of the cliff where the parish church of St Mary's and the ruins of Whitby Abbey can be reached. Don't worry there are resting places on the steps - these were designed as rest for coffins being carried up to the church though! It was up these steps that Dracula is said to have raced up - well he must have been fit! - and fled back down disguised as black dog. The cobbled path at the side is known as the donkey path.
